  • Family home transformed into a history museum with numerous reminders of the Da Silva family or the benign in the world. It takes about an hour to visit. 2000 FCFA entry, 1000 for the Beninese.

  • The Nice museum guide made us appreciate a weird place, a kind of junk of objects of all ages, but given the lack of cultural places existing in Benin, it is already a good thing that this place exists.
